You don’t really notice that not everyone is able to do sports. Those who are not included don’t talk about it, and say they don’t want to play anyway, even if they do. – Girl, 14 years old, Oslo

ALLEMED (ALLIN) is a tool developed to make it easier to include all children and young people in recreational activities, regardless of the financial situation of their families. The tool facilitates discussions and ideas on how to include all.

ALLEMED (ALLIN) has been developed by Nasjonal dugnad mot fattigdom og utenforskap blant barn og unge, NDFU (National effort to reduce poverty and exclusion among children and young people). NDFU is a broad, joint initiative by Norwegian NGOs, academic communities and associations. You can read more about us at

An increasing number of children and young people grow up in low-income families. Child poverty leads to exclusion from social, cultural and sports are- nas, which in turn can amplify the feeling of not belonging. That is why it is so important that we join forces and make sure all children can grow and develop in nurturing circumstances, as well as have equal opportunities to participate.

Kind regards NDFU"
